Earthquake Alert?




Hello everyone!!!. Well... I know... the title of my post today is not my favourite one at all. This past weekend British Columbia experienced two earthquakes. We have been expecting a big one for ages, it may come or not but we are always aware that it can happen. Well my son's school has this routine every year: parents have to write a letter of comfort for our kids in case of emergency. We have to prepare a Ziplog bag with the letter, an underwear change, socks, a little toy and a family picture.  I cry so much every time I have to do this. Well... this year and after two 7.7 earthquakes this past weekend I decided to keep him home today and make a card for him to take tomorrow to school. 



I know... I have two more kids but they are older and understand more the situation. My oldest son was at a Youth Service in our church on Saturday when the first one shook B.C. He said he didn't feel it but he saw the lamps of the church moving from side to side. I asked him if he was scared and he said "NO"... "it is not that the whole church was moving... then I would have been scared"... but for my seven years old the story is completely different, plus he is "TERRIFY" of natural disasters. He cannot see the news reporting about one that immediately asks... "is that in Canada???". 

All my prayers for everyone in the East and West coast of North America this days!!!.

For this card I used:

Cardstock: Whisper White and  Not Quite Navy from SU
Designer paper: Breeze from My Mind's Eye
Stamps: Little Loves from Some Odd Girl and I love you sentiment from Frosty and Fabulous snowman from MFT
Accessories: Oval Stax die from MFT, Vanilla hodgehardware, Paper piercing tool kit, button, Perfect Polka dots embossing folder and Star punch from SU, Twine from the dollar store and Copic Markers. 

Thanks for looking!!!

Wow! I had no idea that BC schools took such measures to prepare for an earthquake. That's crazy!! I hope we don't get the "big one" and that everyone stays safe!
